Thank you Maarten for all the information and all the work that you have done.
Happy to meet you and the others onn August 14th.
Have a really nice time in America with the other Cohenites.
I didn´t kill myself when things went wrong
I didn´t turn to drugs or teaching
I tried to sleep, but when I couldn´t sleep
I learned to write.
I learned to write what might be read
on nights like this by one like me.

Franjel,
I have included you in my list (newer version not yet uploaded). See you in Ghent!

Another thing worth mentioning:
The GreenHouse Talent letter also states that if -for some reason (really bad weather,...)- a concert can't happen, it can be moved to either Aug 13 or Aug 16. Those are the 2 free dates in between the concerts... But this of course will only happen in extreme circumstances.

Thanks Maarten, it is fabulous!!!
It's great that you have succeeded and persuaded Gruut to stay open
for us on Sunday night! What's the deal? How much beer must be flowing?

It is hard to believe that you are doing all the work on your own....
or is there a hidden team of elfs/willing volunteers/family members?

With the best wishes for Madison,
see you at Gruut on 12th August,
we'll be in time to pick up all the delicious items!

Hi Pe,
nice to hear that you and your wife are joining the group.
If you need any assistance, we are there to help!
See you soon,

Jarmila and Peter (1abc)

P.S. Not sure if you get a quick answer from Maarten,
he is in Madison, having - well deserved - great time....

Pe,
I'll add you to my list and will try to arrange nametags for the two of you when I'm back in Belgium! See you at De Gruut!

Jarmila,
I'm not having much sleep here! :-)
The first day went very well (registration and concert) but I'm already getting tired and the Event has only just begun... :shock:
Very kind of you to offer to help Pe out with the wheelchair for his wife, much appreciated I'm sure.
